Avatar f tn A cervical spine problems causes symptoms from the level of the problem down. The symptoms don't travel up so if you have tingling in your face and on your head it is something else. A spine issue can cause headaches though as the muscles can spasm in the neck and cause a headache. You may want to get tested for Lyme disease. It can cause most of your symptoms.

Avatar f tn I have fibromyalgia symptoms triggered by a mosquito borne illness. I use monolaurin (amazing!) to get rid of muscle pain, exercise regularly (walking, yoga, stretching) to get rid of joint pain and joint stiffness and quit refined sugar, gluten and dairy. I am now in remission. I still suffer from fatigue but nothing like it used to be! This seems to be the magic formula for me. Also, I take magnesium citrate at night for anxiety and sleep.
Avatar n tn These symptoms of numbness, tingling, stiffness etc. also seem to fall into a lot of other neurological disorders. I convinced my doctor to give me oral B12 injections even though they said my results were normal. My grandfather and two aunts had Pernicious Anemia so I figured if the B12 injections wouldn't harm me, I had nothing to lose. My symptoms started in the fall of 2001 with foot drop.

Avatar n tn Hi Angela, As a fellow Fibromyalgiac, I have to say that some of what you listed as symptoms just baffled me. I've been living with it for almost 10 years now...and for the record, I can't stand it when someone says "you're fine" but insists on turning you into a walking pharmacy. But while they are not "Fibro" symptoms, it doesn't mean that everything is fine.
Avatar f tn I was wondering if anyone also suffers from numbness of fingers and legs? Also in the summer I have no pain, but as soon as the cold hits, it feels like my bones are being crushed. Is this really fibromyalgia or something else?
Avatar n tn This is a true medical condition whereby instead of a patient experiencing depression or anxiety, they experience physical symptoms, and once the stress is addressed, the symptoms resolve. Fibromyalagia is another medical condition that leads to whole body pains, and is best treated with medications such as lyrica and neurontin, exercise, and physical therapy. You should continue working with your neurologist. The diagnosis may take time to make.
Avatar n tn Finally after working 2 months with this the pain was to much, and was occompanied with partial numbness to the back of the right leg, *** to foot. The MRI came back: Mild dextroscoliosis of the lumbar spine is seen without acute fractures, Dislocations, lytic or blastic defections or congenital anomalies. The intervertebral disc spaces appear to be adequately maintained. There were no perivertebal soft tissue masses, calcifications or bone adnormalities. Mild facet hypertrophic changes.
Avatar n tn I had a Thyroidectomy in Oct. with parathyroid damage - was readmitted for 3 days to get calcium level up. The worst of the hypocalcemic symptoms were numbness and tingling. I had "right sided" symptoms - right half paralysis of mouth - numbness/tingling in right hand, foot, leg.... Anyway, just making a connection to the thyroid surgery and numbness. Could be calcium related.

Avatar f tn My doctors are considering a diagnosis of fibromyalgia, contingent upon the results of a recent biopsy to determine if Sjogren's is a factor. Can fibromyalgia be the cause of my symptoms that cycle (recurring fevers, rash, fatigue, pain, blurry vision, and numbness in hands and feet)? I've heard of it being a factor in regard to fatigue and pain, but am unsure about vision, rash, numbness, and especially fevers.
Avatar n tn ALS is purely a motor problem, meaning there is no numbness or tingling or other sensory symptoms. It causes weakness and wasting without numbness and tingling.
Avatar f tn The one common thread with Lyme Disease is the number of systems affected (brain, central nervous system, autonomic nervous system, cardiovascular, digestive, respiratory, musco-skeletal, etc.) and sometimes the hourly/daily/weekly/monthly changing of symptoms. No one will have all symptoms but if many are present serious consideration must be given by any physician to Lyme as the possible culprit. Lyme is endemic in Canada period.
434278 tn?1324709825 The pain across the back of your shoulders is very typical of fibromyalgia. It is not uncommon for lupus patients to also have fibromyalgia. The one thing that seems to help with fibro is sleep. I take a benadryll and a melatonin to help me sleep. I'm not saying that you only have lupus. I was also told that all I had was fibro and deep don I knew I had more than fibro. I know people w/ fibro and they have never been as sick as I was.
5682570 tn?1372290919 ACV (apple cider vinegar) diluted with water for the scalp may help , but do a test on a small area first, just in case you react. For the tingling and numbness on your nose and perhaps the itchiness as well, check out the following possibilities: 1. Low iron, low potassium, low magnesium, low B vitamins. Need to be tested for nutritional and mineral deficiencies (CBC) and tissue analysis for minerals. 2. Stress levels. 3. Fungal overgrowth/candida. You may do a preliminary self-test.
